Some months ago I had a leak in my 16'x32'x6' oval inground pool.
We were shipped a vinyl liner designed to fit a rectangular pool.
Because of the nature of the mistake (the contractor or one of his minions ordered incorrectly)
and the fact that the main drain was set and cut before anyone figured this mess out the liner is NOT returnable.
The contractor has on more than one occasion told me
"the liner will be here Wednesday, we'll be out Saturday to install"
only to turn around a few days later to tell me the order was lost, etc.
A few days ago he knocked on my door (I was expecting him to show up with the replacement liner)
to tell me that he's giving up trying to get the correct liner and hands me a check for all monies already paid him.
I now have my money back AND a liner in my pool that doesn't exactly fit.
I'm seriously considering cutting and seaming all four corners to make it fit.
I could use an extra couple thousand dollars.
Am I insane or does anyone out there think this might work?
It might not be perfect when I finish but what do I have to lose?
Anyone tried something like this before and have any pointers?
If I do it correctly I don't think there will be any weight bearing seams, it could work, yes?
Please be nice, I already feel dumb just asking the question, Danny.
